contretemps \KAHN-truh-tahn\, noun; plural contretemps \-tahnz\:
An inopportune or embarrassing situation or event; a hitch.
This week's episode of Cheaters was chock full of chicanery and all manner of contretemps.
(Has anyone ever seen that show? I fell asleep during SNL and it was on when I woke up at 12:30AM. Snoops with video cameras follow cheating partners around and then show the taped shenanigans to the cheatees. I have no excuse for my behavior except that my husband fell asleep on the remote and prevented me from changing the channel.)
